3-0 Camels Off to Fastest Start Since 2000
NEW LONDON, Conn. -Senior Abby Hine (Madison, Conn.) scored a goal and an assist and Britt Fitzgerald (Ridgefield, Conn.) accounted for the game-winner as the Connecticut College field hockey team raced out to its fastest start (3-0) as a program since 2000 with a 2-0 NESCAC victory against Williams College (1-2, 0-2) Saturday.
Aimee Rich (Darien, Conn.) posted her second shutout of the season with four saves for the Camels. Senior net-minder Katrina Tulla (New Canaan, Conn.) made seven saves in the setback for the Ephs.
The Camels got all of the offense they would need 4:10 into regulation on a penalty. Liz Rosenfeld (Leola, Pa.) provided the stick stop on the corner and played the ball over to Hine, who connected with Fitzgerald in front of the cage for the goal.
Hine added an insurance goal with 5:21 remaining in regulation. With the goal, Hine moved into third place on the Camels´ all-time scoring list, passing Connecticut College Athletic Hall of Famer Sue Landau '87 with 82 points.
Connecticut College held a 13-to-8 advantage in shots while racking up 12 corners in the triumph.
The Camels will visit Eastern Connecticut State this Tuesday for a 4:00 p.m. non-conference contest. Williams College will host Colby next Saturday for an 11:00 a.m. NESCAC tilt.
